    Man accused of threatening neighbor while genital-hoisting

    When your're wheeling out you garbage in the morning, the last thing you probably want to see is more junk.

    A man told deputies that John Solomayar, his 60-year-old neighbor, had threatened his life before walking into the middle of a Port St. Lucie boulevard where he allegedly wagged his weiner at him while shouting, "suck it," according to an arrest affidavit, reports Will Greenlee in his Off the Beat blog for TCPalm.com in Stuart.


    I'll admit I laughed at the first sentence. However, how do you allow somebody to write "weiner." I know it's a blog, but for Christ sake, we're still journalists.

    Made it four words without a mistake.

    Then crapped the bed with "you garbage."

    You're giving partial credit for "your're"?

    The idea was great, but the execution was terrible. Two mistakes in the first five words? Wow. And that paper won a Pulitzer this year.

    Um, you called out Will, but it was the woman copying his blog that used weiner AND had the mistake on you.

    If you click on the link to the original blog, he used penis.

    No, I didn't even know Will existed. How did you get me calling out Will? My point was how are you a journalist and use the word wiener?

    Because they way that you did it makes it looked the original blog used the word weiner. Since the criticism was of the woman, her name should have been included. That's all.
